Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It Swatch

30 Dec

Hey Guys! It’s been a long time since I posted, I know. The holidays are always so busy! But, I’m back and so excited for the New Year!
This post has been a long time coming. I took these pictures at least a month ago and actually forgot I had them until I was going through my camera earlier. On Black Friday, I made an order at Ninjapolish.com. Honestly, most of the reason was that if you spent at least $50, you got a free, new, unreleased polish from their Bling! Collection. If you’ve ever heard of Ninja Polish, you’d know that their polishes are to DIE for! They’re supey shiny and beautiful.

I also ordered Models Own Boogie Nights (Purple) and Models Own Freak Out! (Blue):

MOAlso, I ordered Ozotic 529 (Idigo/Purple, orange, and a little bit of pink glitter) and 530 (gold, red, and orange glitter)

OZAnd then I ordered Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It. The second bottle is the one I got for free called Nebula! It’s so gorgeous!!!!

So I had been wanting to order Ninja Polish’s Sexy & I Know It. It’s like a blue,pink,and green holo glitter. In the bottle, it’s soooo glittery that it’s hard to handle.

I tried it over Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue By!

S&IKII really like Blue By! as well. It really does dry super fast! Anyway! Onto the swatches 🙂

S&IKI3S&IKI2The formula of both of these are great! This is 1 coat of Blue By! under either 2 or 3 coats of Sexy & I Know It. It’s super sparkly. But honestly, I don’t know if I like these 2 together. I think it’s pretty, but it doesn’t showcase the amazingness of Sexy & I Know It. But still, a beautiful polish, I suggest you go buy a bottle! 🙂

OPI DS Magic VS Orly Lunar Eclipse

1 Dec

Hey Guys! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! I know I am! I’ve been super busy lately, as usual 🙂 I ordered a nail polish making kit on Etsy the other day so I’ve been doing that lately, and I LOVE IT!

Anyway, I was going through my nail polish collection and saw that these 2 polishes look almost exactly alike. I was a little disappointed because I don’t like “wasting” money so when I find 2 polishes that are so similar, that’s exactly how I feel. But, I figured that it would be a good thing to show you, considering one of these is considerably higher priced than the other.

I already did a review of OPI Designer Series Magic which you can find here. Orly Lunar Eclipse is from the Cosmic FX collection that released in Fall 2010. I actually bought this at Ulta and I think it may have been on sale.

First and Ring Finger: Orly Lunar Eclipse
 Middle and Pinky: OPI DS Magic

I spent probably 10 full minutes staring at my nails just to see if I could tell the difference and I honestly couldn’t. Orly LE has a lot more purple color shift in the bottle but it doesn’t really show up on the nail. These are definitely dupes.

Considering Orly retails for $8 and the OPI DS bottles retail at $12 (I think), I think Orly is the better choice. Also, Orly has .6 oz as opposed to OPI, with only .5. The only plus side about the OPI bottle is that it has a pretty brush handle, and I prefer the brush size.
